UPDATE 11/09/17: Unfortunately this event has now been cancelled due to low ticket sales.
Founded in 1078 by William the Conqueror and officially known as Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress the Tower of London, The Tower ensures the safety of the crown jewels. It will also be the special venue for a private dinner and auction in aid of the MS Trust on Thursday 21 September.
With auction items including a week in a 5-star chalet in Chamonix, an 1966 England World Cup shirt signed by Geoff Hurst, a training session with boxer David Haye, historical items from the Tower, a military vehicle driving day, a tailor-made suit worth £2,500 and much more, this really is a night not to be missed.
You will also witness the ancient Ceremony of the Keys, a ceremony that has taken place without fail every night for the last 750 years. Enjoy a three-course meal with wine in the stunning Headquarters of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, overlooking the great White Tower.
In March 2016 Yeoman Warder Andy Merry was diagnosed with MS and he is determined not to let this condition define him or prevent him doing the things he loves. Andy and a team of family and friends took on the challenge of climbing Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, and raised over £30,000 for the MS Trust.
Andy said, “One of the aims of climbing this mountain was to show other people with MS that MS doesn’t have to stop you achieving your goals.”
Andy has organised this private dinner and auction to raise additional funds to help more people living with MS and to make sure no one has to manage MS alone.
